“The Fly” quotes(1986)
Plot – In an isolated and outdated laboratory, a physicist called Brundle discovers teleportation and he shows Veronica, a journalist, his lab and his invention. The scientist decides then to experiment it on himself, but a fly enters the machine too and the man undergoes an unexpected mutation. Brundle progressively changes becoming a mutant monster with an uncontrollable force. Veronica is the first one to notice the extraordinary phenomenon. Brundle starts to eat only sweets and sugars and the woman realizes she's pregnant. The scientist has now completely changed his appearance and he's reduced to a creeping and giant beast. Brundle is however still able to think and begs Veronica to shot him. After killing him, the woman cries over a mass of flesh.
